I went on a trip to Wishbone for brunch one day and I just fell in love with this restaurant. The outside is very artistic and colorful, but when you go inside, the ambiance is warm and inviting. I ordered the blackened catfish with cheese grits, toast, and eggs. It was the best breakfast I have ever had! To this day, whenever I go to Wishbone, that's what I order. It's not the cheapest restaurant, but you'll be thankful for every bite.
I love this restaurant!! The servers are really nice and down to earth, and always have good recommendations...my grandmother was one of the greatest home cooks ever, and eveything on the menue tastes like it was cooked at my grandmothers house!!
This place will make all your wishes come true! Yeah, I been here a mess of times! Service, atmosphere, & of course the food is always dee-lish! My wife and I went there tonight. She's vegetarian and she's happy with the selections they have for her palette. I had the Blue Plate special: Blackened Chicken, mashed taters, black beans & rice, and cole slaw for $7.99 with a tall cold Winter Ale for $3.25! Ahhhh! What's also cool is they got this sign up when you walk in that says Adult Swim....meaning if yer gonna have children with ya after 7pm, they're asking that they be on their best behavior (I concur!) and it also asks to please curb any electronic noises such as cell phones and the like (mmmhmmm!). All of this kinda helps the atmosphere of the place, making it a nice relaxing restaurant to get a top notch experience! (And oh them desserts...sheesh!)
One of my favorite lunch spots to hang out on holidays and days off. It's comfortable to sit at, and they have great food. It's a diverse clientelle and reminds me of both New York and L.A. How? I don't know.
I always went to the Wishbone downtown for sunday brunch. I was always warned to stay away from the one on Lincoln. I recently moved to Lakeview and started going to this one, but it's a little different. The food seems to just be piled on the plate, service is just ok, a much smaller outdoor patio, which is where you want to sit. I sat outside once, the first time we went, and everything was perfect. Then I sat inside twice and both times we felt hurried, the food was just so-so, the presentation of the food was pitiful, seating was uncomfortable, our bloodys took forever, and the service was pretty bad. This place could be so great! I guess it's so popular that they don't need to try, but that only lasts for a little while. So, wait for outdoor seating or go to Wishbone downtown. I won't be back so you have one less couple waiting to sit outside now. There are too many brunch options in Lakeview to be getting mediocre food and service, really. Get it together Lakeview indoor Wishbone brunch managers, servers and cooks or BEAT IT!
